Description of Wine Management

The MSc combines industry-related teaching modules in administration, finance, sales, logistics and legal issues with oenology, wine tasting and wine tourism to provide students with the knowledge required for selling a product as unique as wine.

As a graduate of this programme, you will have gained a global understanding of this unique industry, enabling you to apply with confidence for managerial positions in all its sectors.

Drawing from an impressive international network of speakers, professionals and academics with in-depth knowledge of the wine sector, the course has a combined theoretical and practical approach.

From financing a wine business to advising consumers on choosing a wine, students are given the full range of tools necessary to sell a product that demands far more versatility than most others.

Our students benefit from the School's proximity and access to some of the greatest wine estates in the world.
